How to Make a Fruit Smoothie Bowl
Now that we are back in the swing of back to school routines, my mornings are busy. I’ve been waking up pretty early to squeeze in writing blog posts or catching up on client work. After a couple of weeks of going and going with the kids, I noticed that I wasn’t taking care of myself in ways that I normally do. I’ve always loved waking up early and making time to enjoy breakfast. It’s nothing like fueling your body with nutritious food to start your day. Lately, I’ve done things I’ve never done like grabbed the first thing I see and eat it for breakfast. Cookies, bread, ice cream (yes, I had sherbert) and cheez-its, just for the sake of putting something in my body when I awake. When enough was enough, I searched Pinterest for breakfast ideas. I found myself gazing at fruit smoothie bowls. Nutritious and beautiful, I was inspired to make them myself. I’d love to share my recipe and hopefully inspire you to make your own.
I can’t help but to love and obsess over how pretty fruit bowls are. Have you seen some of the pictures on Pinterest? The colors and attention to detail entices all of your senses. Good thing, they aren’t just pretty. They are super healthy. Each bowl has plenty of antioxidants and vitamins for a breakfast meal. When I’ve had a smoothie bowl, thick and creamy, and packed with delicious fruit toppings, I definitely feel like I’ve had a sufficient meal. It is enough to keep me going through the morning. Plus, I feel so good knowing Jasiel is getting his nourishment as well.
